Phil presents this video about his first time smoking and how awkward it was. It’s kind of a random video (what do you expect from Phil?) but has a really good message about smoking which is basically, like, don’t because it’s kind of rubbish.

Basically, when he was a kid Phil realllllllllllly wanted to be a member of a gang of kids who lived near him called The Boys (great name, huh?) and when he asked to join they made him do some initiations. One of these was smoking. Now Phil had never really wanted to smoke because he didn’t like the smell, knew that it was bad for him and also would be in SO MUCH TROUBLE if his Mum ever found out. But he also really wanted to join The Boys, so… you’ll have to watch the video to see what happened!

Spoiler Alert: Phil didn’t smoke in the end. But this video is actually less about Phil and more about YOU, because the pressure to smoke is huge and you might think “I want to smoke” when you’re at parties or after school. Maybe you’re actually a smoker now and you want to know about quitting smoking. The good news is you can – you’ve just got to remember Phil’s awkward, embarrassing tale of smoking and remember that smoking is rubbish. The video gives you advice on smoking and reveal that it doesn’t make you 10 times more attractive (like we said, it’s kind of a random video…) and it might mean you end up grounded forever. Which would suck.
